Marilyn If you're looking for "escape" reading, Beautiful Ruins is a good choice. The setting is coastal Italy, Hollywood, & the Northwest! Chapters alternate between 1962 & the present telling the story of a budding Hollywood actress who has an affair with Richard Burton. She is sent away to a remote Italian hotel by the publicist for the movie, Cleopatra. Lots of larger-than-life characters and action.
